In commenting on the nomination
of Woodrow Wilson the Salem Status
man ys :
In real progressive principles, that
make' for the development and sym
mctric.nl growth of his country, and
for its higher place among worl
Downrs and for the onward ruaroh of
niank'nd as a whole, William Howard
Taft outclnsncs Woodrow Wilson
Mr. Taft is for international pcaoe
and has a definite program. He is for
the taking nf the taxill question ou
of the muddy slougli of party politics
and nlacing it on a business basis for
a tar. ft" commifsion to study every
phase of the malt r, all the time nnd
for amendina a schedule at a time, as
needed. Asrait st the rierindcal distur
birg ot business by appeals to preju
dices and sections.
In all the broad field of true and
conduct' ve statesmanship, Mr. Taft
is far superior in ability, eqaipmeat
and training to Wilson He ma
and will maka for this country a bet
ter cheif executive than Wilson.
If the people uf the United States
can be induced to lay aside prejudices
for reason, Mr. Taft will be reelected.
If this cannot be accomulislied Mr.
Wilson's chances for election in No
vember are good.
Washing on politicians are up :i
the air, rather badly, as to the poss:.
ble effect of the nomination of Wood-
row Wilson for President by the dem
ocrats. Being a prouressive, his vie
tory is bound to hurt the chanoes of
Theodore Roosevelt, who declares that
he is going to run as a progressive
Republican. This condition is bound
to react in the case of candidates for
state offltp, mmy of whom hve been
hohlug off in making their annouue-
tnnnt. As it looks now, there will
be three tickets in the field locally :
Republican, Democrat and Progress
iv. The ultimate result is one that
is giving rise to considerable specula
ton Washington Democrats have
declared their intention nf lining up
back of Wilson and Marshall, although
thev voted for OlramD Clark solidly,
until his defeat was accomplished.
riecpner's Fourth was quiet and
rane. Quite a contrast to former
venra when the neople of the town
were in fear of fire or other disaster
from the excessive use of explosives
Different men have various wave of
accomplishing results and a method
that would apneal to one man would
be rejected by another. We have in
mind tbe crusade under way headed
by Governor West a crusade against
vice, disorderly saloons and road
bouses in which the militia of the
state has been railed into requisition.
It Icohs like taking an axe to kill a
fly. Not beiause we consider the
evils mentioned as small and insig
nificant, as the flv, but we believe the
Givernor is on the wrong trail. Every
ccuntv in the state has its peaoe
officets; every district its prosecuting
attorneys, sworn and raid to prose
cute violations of the laws. If the
Governor hts proof positive that these
officers are drawing their salaries and
at the same time shielding vice and
refusing to prosecute criminals aod
lawbreakers, then it would ceem to be
'he duty of the Governor to remove
them from office or prosecute and send
them to the penitentiary for neglect
of duty or violation of their oath of
office. A removal or two with a few
orosecutions would doubtless have
the desired effect. Oregon Messea-

Oregon has Chance to Cap

Oregon should capture the prize for

by the Northwest Development Lesgue
for the best five bushels exhibithed at
the Minneapolis Land Show io Novem

ssnred for Oregon, this state should
have any quantity of fhrst class wheat
to enter at this show.
Cimmrecial bodies of the state are
howing an interest in the collection

Winter at the land shows of the Mid

out by Manager Chapman of tbe Ore

promisiug to collect samples of the
best products grown there this season
nd it seems a good, collection is as
sured. No locality should allow itielf
